It's not easy getting a job in North America these days, and Don Romonov tells us his experiences working for one giant, soul sucking corporation.
This author is an astute observer of human beings and was in a location full of amazing and unusual specimens of humanity that he sketches for us, quickly and competently.
He outlines the problems with corporate management thoughtfully and intelligently. It's a miracle this place continues to function. Literally a miracle as it wrings blood out of stones.
He has a wicked sense of humour that had me laughing out loud every now and then, and at one point, very near the end of the book, I laughed for five minutes. This alone was worth the price of admission.
I read some of the other reviews. Some warned about f-bombs. There are f-bombs, but they're always appropriate and tasteful.
Some reviews criticized this author's spelling, word use, or formatting, and I can say, as a person who automatically edits any book she reads, this book was well written, with few typos or spelling mistakes. There were very minor formatting problems but the storytelling was so powerful that the formatting problems were not noticible.
Mr. Romonov has an incredible wit and sense of humour. He could write dialogue for movies or tv that would be remembered forever.
He opened my eyes to the incompetence and unnecessary cruelty that goes on in the corporate store. I will be shopping there less. Much, much less.
I've had difficult times in my life, but nothing to compare with what he describes. He is to be congratulated for making lemonade out of this puppy.
In short, I loved the book. If you love people watching, astute observation and analysis, and laughing, you will enjoy this book.
I think it's a great read, and give it a Tremendous, and 5 stars.
Don relays his daily struggles with Asberger's Syndrome (a form of autism), making ends meet, his friends and their activities and the horrors of working at "The Company Store." This book is both terribly sad and hilarious. The stream-of-consciousness (and loaded with sarcasm) entries about the people he sees in the store and the real-life things that they do are as mystifying as they are unbelievable. I laughed out loud a number of times at things he mentioned. When I tried to read them aloud to my family, I laughed so hard I had tears streaming down my face!
Now, a word of warning, the language in the book is crass, graphic and may be offensive to some. The f- word sprinkles most of the pages. If you can get past that, this is a very entertaining read. I give it a B+.
i read a lot of these "free books" and have enjoyed many but i dont keep them on my kindle i delete when done but, i will save this book and hope i forget the story so that some year i may again read this book. thank you don
